My Students

In our school, I have the oldest children, and my students this year are a wonderful group of 4-year-olds who are eager to be the big kids.

This year, there are even more demands than ever being placed on my students' young minds, but I know each and every one will be up to the task.

With hard work and determination, I feel we can reach the goals set for them. All we need now is to have the right materials and resources to get each one of them ready for Kindergarten!

My Project

Creative arts is one of the toughest subjects to teach. Creativity cannot be simply taught; it must be nurtured and developed in each individual at his or her own pace and ability. I believe every child has an artistic talent that needs to be explored but this can only be done if the materials are made available to them.

We need colored tape, paintbrushes, watercolor paper and other art supplies.

Supplies are very hard to come by and, when we do get them, they're often not enough to last us the entire school year. With your help, I will be able to provide my students with paints, brushes, tape, craft sticks and other classroom supplies that will help them get in touch with the artist within.
